    For the first one, look at your isosceles triangle ABM (where M is that Mid point)

    Draw a line splitting it in half

    Use basic trig to find a half of x

    Fixed the attachment. I said Easy because the marks awarded is 2 marks therefore not much working out is required. So although it's easy it doesn't mean I know how to do it.

    well, tbh, if you cannot see the triangle with x in it then you are not going to be able to solve this question
